I'm a home schooling mom of 9, 5 boys and 4 girls, ages 1 1/2 to 21! Blissfully married for 22 years to a man who makes me laugh everyday. I love having tea with friends, with my hubby, or with a good book. I'm addicted to thrift shops and yard sales and love the thrill of the hunt! I enjoy cooking and entertaining. I love all things vintage, and the things in my home all have a story to tell.
Hi All! It's Tablescape Thursday again hosted by Susan @ BNOTP, and as always here at the Lace and Ivy Cottage, decorating is done on a thrifty budget. So please join the hunt for more thrifty treasures with Leigh @ Bloggeritaville.
Many of you may recognize much of my tableware from a previous post, but I tweeked things a little bit to add some tropical flare. I like using edible centerpieces, simply because they're, well, edible! My kids can't wait for me to cut into that pineapple. And those limes would be perfect for some Mojitos!
The mangoes have some time yet to ripen. At least my centerpiece won't be devoured all at once! Does this runner look familiar? I used one on my met monday post. I bought 3 of these reed runners from the GW last week for $2.99 each.
I've seen these placemats everywhere, from Crate & Barrel to Target. But these came from my mom, straight from the Philippines. Thanks mom!
The blue plates and water goblets are from the ever reliable Dollar Tree.
These plates are made for IKEA and I found 12 of them for $2 at an outlet.
The napkins are actually kitchen towels, also from the DT.
I was drawn to the citron color of these bowls and was inspired to create a tablescape around them. Yes, from the DT as well.
So, there you have it, my very thrifty tropical tablescape!
Thanks for visiting the Lace and Ivy Cottage. Let me know you've stopped by and say hi!
